    I mean footwork like a boxer's footwork. Not his ability to control and pass the ball.

    Footwork in the sense of what a goalkeeper has to do to dive effectively, save close shots, create an effective defence when moving towards the attacker. It has possibly been his biggest downfall. It's been the subject of articles in quality newspapers. Written by ex goalkeepers,

    The ability control and pass is one of the requirements in the playing style Pep is trying to implement.

    I can see what you're trying to say and its something I've noticed too. It's almost like he's a failed outfield player that decided to have a go in nets. Some, not all, of the basics appear to be missing. One I notice in particular is when faced with a close shot, most keepers starfish and make themselves as big a target as possible. Bravo never does that, in fact, he's back on his heels and presents a smaller target.

    Ah, apologies. I however don't agree with your belief that he hacks it as much as anyone else.

    A quick scan back over page 1 will show that the debate has mellowed somewhat.

    Is that page 1 of this topic or the one before? Because this one started in January. Just pointing out the ridicule.

    It was funnier back then, mind.

    I ment page 1 from the first Bravo topic, as he had one before this. And the number of pages ever since his debut vs scum is what I find ridiculous to say the least. Although half of it is probably Bill who hasn't much of a life without this topic.
